HK Technologies show new EDM machines at MACH 2016

MACH is the outstanding showcase for advances in the manufacturing industry brought to you by the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA), a UK based trade association dealing specifically with engineering based manufacturing. It is a biennial exhibition which brings together all the best innovations and latest developments to come from the manufacturing technologies sectors under one roof. HK Technologies took centre stage with its new line of Mitsubishi EDM machines. HK Technologies introduced two of the very latest EDM solutions from the premium Mitsubishi brand.

The impressive line of MV Series EDM machines from Mitsubishi will clearly stand head and shoulders above all other EDM machines at MACH with the next generation of innovation on show. Two machines making their MACH debuts were demonstrated with technology advancements such as the best 'auto threading' system on the market today.

Incorporating the latest innovations in machine construction and power supply technology, the Mitsubishi MV Series introduces an impressive annealing length that makes this range of machines capable of threading the maximum workpiece height and also providing a realistic opportunity for the customer to thread through the gap as well as dry (no water jet) for smaller workpieces. This new feature is ideal for end users that may need to recover broken wire.

From an operational cost perspective, the new MV Series introduces Mitsubishi's new V350-V AEII Power Supply DMX-S (Digital Matrix Sensor) that shapes each spark to reduce electrode wear considerably. This feature reduces consumable costs for the end user whilst reducing the power consumption and subsequent running costs of the machine.

The MV Series also features the M700 Series control unit that has a particularly large 15-inch touch-screen monitor. This Windows based control is both intuitive and user friendly and with the 15 inch screen, it improves operation for the end user. From a productivity standpoint, the MV series introduces the World's first Linear Shaft Drive System XY which delivers smooth, highly controllable movements and unparalleled precision levels. Supported with a 12 year positional manufactures warranty, the MV Series delivers unbeatable speed, precision and running cost reductions.

All this technology is built upon a fine grain 'Dianite' casting material that guarantees the 'one-piece' hardened 4-sided stainless work table is mounted on the most robust and precise high quality base that is available. Furthermore, the MV range has a vertical machine tank door for improved set-up and operation. All this is provided to end users in the UK with uncompromising levels of support and service from HK Technologies.
